At Coco, we’re dedicated to perfecting the last-mile delivery experience through robotics. We believe the delivery service industry in its current state is massively under-serving merchants, and we are committed to creating a sustainable, reliable, and frictionless delivery experience for merchants and their customers.

Coco is a venture-backed, Series A stage startup that operates hundreds of sidewalk robots, delivering to thousands of customers every week across Los Angeles. The environment here is high-energy, collaborative, and exciting. Our HQ is located in the heart of Santa Monica with views of the ocean.

Coco’s Summer Internship Program provides an opportunity for college students to gain valuable, hands-on training in a fast paced startup environment in the robotics food delivery industry.

Internships are 10-weeks in length, beginning June 5, and in-person, out of either our Santa Monica headquarters or our Culver City Maintenance & Repair site, depending on the team. This is a non-paid internship program; academic credit is available.
